On Sunday, April 29, hundreds of Service Experts employees, along with family, friends and vendor partners, gathered in multiple bowling facilities across the United States and Canada for a fun-filled day of team spirit to help grant wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Marcus Hiles – Texas Rental Market: How Developers are Keeping Up and Keeping Rent Down for The Population Boom

Marcus Hiles – Texas Rental Market: How Developers are Keeping Up and Keeping Rent Down for The Population Boom

DALLAS, March 14, 2018 — With over half a million new residents coming to Texas each year, the area’s housing options are shrinking and forcing new development to keep up. In fact some of the top Texas metros and their surrounding areas including Dallas have held some of the largest increases in new residential and commercial construction growth across the nation in recent years.

Marcus Hiles is a Dallas Fort Worth-based property developer

With this demand for housing seemingly outweighing the available properties in the state’s most desired city and suburban locations, an influx in both rental costs and home market appreciation is on the rise. Developers and property firms are more focused than ever on breaking new ground to make room for new and relocated renters and buyers.

One of DFW’s leading property development firms, Western Rim Properties is focusing its expansion in some of the state’s top surrounding city locations with nine new projects coming in 2018 to areas like Rowlett and Farmers Branch. With its communities serving the growing need for affordable rental properties that provide some of the area’s highest quality accommodations, the development locations are also positioned where the market is headed – just outside of Texas’ city centrals.

The cause for this shift in growth headed to the city outskirts is a direct reflection of the population boom and underdeveloped housing availability. Price spikes and limited inventories are pushing residents to explore new locations.

Take one of the state’s leading metro areas DFW, which had the highest jump in rental prices in Texas growing 3.8% in 2017 – double the national median increase that was reported at 1.9% in Zillow’s annual rental forecast report.

With a booming economy and job market that helped land Dallas as one of the top 10 home markets in the nation, it’s no surprise costs are increasing in the city and more people are looking for affordable alternatives near this leading location.

Recent reports have even shown the majority market of new home buyers and renters – millennials – are headed for popular Texas suburbs over its city centrals. “The rental communities of today’s generations provide city-like amenities and top of the line accommodations. Along with close proximity to cities and thriving job markets, these suburban developments are giving renters what they’re after,” shares Marcus Hiles, CEO and founder of Western Rim Properties.

The Texas community as a whole is starting to adapt this forward thinking approach as new businesses are relocating and expanding to areas outside of the city focused on growth. Among the leaders, McKinney, Plano and Allen.

It seems the state is bringing change that will soon be the standard in many major metro areas. Residents and businesses are investing where the opportunity is and it’s opening up a new market for all.

$100 million Plano campus project lands first business tenants

$100 million Plano campus project lands first business tenants

Special Contributor

One of North Texas’ largest office campus redos has landed its first tenant.

Regent Properties is spending more than $100 million to convert the former Texas Instruments campus on U.S. Highway 75 in Plano into a mixed-use development.

The 85-acre project will include offices, retail space, apartments and hotel rooms.

California-based Regent Properties has finished the phase one renovations on four office buildings on the tract and is signing up the first tenants.

Two tech firms – Roland Technology Group and The 20 – have rented almost 23,000-square-feet in the project on the west side of U.S. 75 south of Legacy Drive.

Roland Technology is an IT support provider for small- and medium-sized businesses and The 20 is a business development group for the IT industry.

Both companies will locate in the first phase Legacy Central office building at 6600 Chase Oaks.

“We had been looking for space for months to accommodate our tremendous growth,” Tim Conkle, CEO of Roland Technology Group and The 20 MSP, said in a statement. “After evaluating neighboring cities and available properties, we found that Legacy Central was the best fit for our companies and brands.

“Legacy Central’s proximity to the highway along with its wide range of amenities meets virtually every one of our needs, allowing us room to grow our staff, conduct training, entertain clients and host events.”

The companies are now located further south in Plano on Republic Drive at U.S. 75.

NAI Robert Lynn’s Kent Smith and Leslie Wood negotiated the lease with Nathan Durham with Transwestern.

The former TI Plano campus was built starting the mid 1980s and has about 1 million square feet of buildings. TI still occupies space at the south end of the complex.

Regent is building a 400-seat food hall, a 200-person conference hall with an entertainment center offering beer and wine on tap and WiFi courtyards connected to hiking and biking trails to the rest of the project.

At the south end of the development, Trammell Crow Residential is building a new apartment community.

“Dynamic companies are looking for modern amenities to support their organization’s growth and a creative environment where their employees love to work, so we transformed the TI Campus with that objective in mind,” Regent Properties director Amy Castellanos said.

Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

Looking For An Apartment Is Harder Than I Thought

I live in Plano, TX and I have stayed with my parents for too long. I have decided that now is the time to branch out and get my own place, so I started my apartment search about a month ago. The thing that is crazy is the fact that I thought it would be much easier than it has been. This is like some nightmare I am having a difficult time waking up from.

The first thing that gave me trouble was trying to decide on a good price range. I created a budget before I got started, but this would only let me afford places in Plano that leave a lot to be desired. There is nothing worse than thinking you will find a gem and being showed a place that has ripped linoleum, walls with holes in them and people milling around in the halls.

Another issue I have is the fact that I pinpointed one area that I would love to live in and I just cannot afford it. This makes me feel terrible since it means that I will have to look for an apartment in an area that is not very well known to me. I am not closeminded when it comes to trying new things, but I am not trying to live in a place where I cannot be completely comfortable. I will have to do some serious research to see what I can come up with.

I thought that I would look at a few places and end up signing a l;ease right away, but it seems like my search is just getting started. I know that this is part of being a responsible adult, but I wish things were much easier than this.
